  1. DAX functions that return Report Name and Page Name

    Please create two new DAX functions, like GetReportName() and GetPageName(). In embedded environment, we're letting customers make copies of reports (they supply the report name), and we let them edit pages (name and content). Instead of hard-coding the report name or page name, it would be ideal to use these functions so that the values automatically change as report/page names change. Thanks.

  3. Power BI Service recognize local time zone for TODAY() and NOW() time intelligence functions

    As of now, the reports that I create on desktop utilize a lot of time intelligence functions and relative date filters. This is completely fine so long as I view the report on the desktop. Once I publish the report up to the service and then utilize those visuals in dashboards I run into this issue. All of my time intelligence functions (TODAY & NOW) and relative date filters convert to UTC.

    This issue causes my data to roll over to the next day 5 hours early which affects all of my subscriptions.

    It would be absolutely fantastic if Power…

  4. Top N+

    Allow User to rank TOP N items plus dynamically create Other group for all the other items.
    For example bar chart visual ranks the Top 5 items by category with sum(count or percentage) but also includes a 6th grouping for all the other items which don't fall into the TOP 5. This 'other' category displays the value (count, sum, %, ...) which will give insight into how ALL the 'Other' items compare to the TOP 5.

  5. Control charts (mR, Pareto etc.).

    It would be awesome if power bi could provide a control chart option with mR charts, Pareto charts etc.

    This would be very helpful in my line of work.

  9. Power BI Publisher for Excel - New Workspace support

    Power BI Publisher for Excel gave users an easy way to pull data sets into excel for analysis without having to go out to the Power BI service. Unfortunately, it only works with the Old Workspace experience. Will it be updated so that you can connect to data sets in New workspaces directly from excel?

  12. Opposite of ALLEXCEPT

    ALLEXCEPT remove all filters except specify columns.
    I'd like function that would keep all filters except specify columns.

    I know I can use ALLEXCEPT and add there all other columns except this one. But It would be much easier if that function would exist.

  16. NETWORKDAYS Function

    The NETWORKDAYS function in Excel must be one of the most commonly used. This needs to be implemented in BI as it is a fundamental point for analysis for any corporation.

  17. Adding a "weeks" option to the quick measure rolling average functionality

    In the new quick measure functionality, when adding a calculation for rolling average the only options under "period" are days, months, quarters and years. Would like to see "weeks" added as an option since many company metrics are measured weekly and we need to be able to perform rolling averages over a set number of weeks.
